Projectile motion help

  1. Oct 1, 2006 #1
    Me and my friend are having a hard time with this question, and it says
    "a daredevil jumps a canyon 12 m wide. To do so, he drives a car up a 15 degree incline.

    What minimum speed must he achiece to clear the canyon and
    what will hi speed be when he reaches the other side?

    Can anyone help us? We don't even know how to set up the problem

    Click on the 3.1 Projectile motion link and then on the
    3.1 Solving Projectile Motion Problems (3) link.

    Load the simulation by clicking on the 1 icon on the right-hand side of the window that opens. Try and answer the questions.
